University Advisement Announcements

Academic advising will be a highly individualized, student-centered approach with a priority to provide personalized attention to each student. The improved approach includes the new student planning software in EagleNet that you will use for building your academic plan and registering for approved courses, and a continuous collaborative process with your advisor for clarification, assessment, and monitoring your academic progression.

Disbursement Policy. 18/WI Qtr. initial disbursements for Direct Loans, Perkins Loan, Pell Grant, GTEG, and SEOG will begin in the first week of classes January 8, 2018.

Life University will release living expense refunds to students only after verifying student’s attendance status and making sure no financial or academic holds are on their records. Students must be enrolled in courses counting towards their degree to be reviewed for aid eligibility. Federal aid cannot be awarded for courses that do not count toward the degree. 

All unpaid tuition/fees and other University debts (such as but not limited to lab fees, institutional charges, and “The Commons” housing) are deducted from students’ financial aid before disbursement. 

The disbursement for HOPE Scholarship and all other scholarships for Winter Quarter 2018 will occur during the 2nd week of the quarter, provided funds are available. Only students who have submitted all the necessary paperwork will have their disbursement available during this time frame.

Please remember that in order to qualify for Georgia Tuition Equalization Grant GTEG you must be enrolled UG full-time (12 hours or more) as of January 15, 2018 for Winter Quarter. In addition, to qualify for a full-time HOPE award you must be enrolled UG full-time as of January 15, 2018, otherwise, you will receive a part-time (6-11 hours) HOPE award. 

Living Expense Refund. Direct Deposits will be made when all proceeds have been received and all eligibility requirements for Financial Aid programs have been met, and in accordance with Federal Regulations related to Title IV funds which are: 

  • No later than 14 days after the first day of class if Federal funds are credited on or before the first day of class. OR
  • No later than 14 days after the credit balance occurred if the funds were credited after classes began.

You will receive your living expense refund on or after January 8, 2018

  • If you are making Satisfactory Academic Progress (as defined by the Financial Aid office), and
  • Your aid proceeds have been disbursed to Life University. 

However, if you receive a living expense refund before January 8, 2018 and drop hours the week of January 8, 2018, you may be over-awarded on your financial aid eligibility. Federal Regulations require that the Office of Financial Aid notify the Office of Student Accounts to send back the amount of your aid, if any, you are not eligible to receive, due to the drop in hours. (See Disbursement Policy above

Your refund may be delayed if you filed your Financial Aid forms late, or they are incomplete.
